Looks Like Winter

Looks like winter has set in pretty solidly here now. Seems like snowfall warnings are a daily occurrence these days. Another one in effect for tonight.
Poor old batteries on the solar powered water bowl are getting a workout. Will have to run the generator down to top them off again in a day or two I'm thinking.

Yep, it does look like winter. Keep it up there awhile longer, ok?
You cows look to be in good shape!
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Looks cold! It's a good thing the cows are in such good condition. Now I'm kind of itching to go for a snowmobile ride.

Yes it does, although you seem to have everything well under control.

In this part of the world if cows don't go into the winter in good condition no amount of pampering will see them in good conditioning come spring.

Same here. Best to put condition on BEFORE winter or you never catch them up.

If you could keep most of that close to home, that would be great. Cows look good.

64F here today and dry as a mouthful of cotton. Either the beginning of another drought or winter has taken a vacation. Send some south when ya have the chance. Cattle look swell! If ya feed your hired hands that well, I'd like to apply for a job :)
A poor ride beats a great walk any day!
